Mother in law problem
I have this major problem with my mother in law. My wife and I were married in 2000 and she was from Europe "Lithuania" we have had a really good relationship. We have a 4 year old son. When I met here her Mother in Lithuania she really seemed to love me we did things together and she was great.
We have been trying to get her over here to stay with us for a while and finnaly she agreed in September. We brought her here in October and since then its been getting worse for us.
I found out from my wife that she really does not like me I would use the word "Hate" she puts me down, I recently lost my job and have been going back to school. I have a good severance package and want to finish my degree. She speaks Lithuanian so it is hard for me becasue I am not great in the language. She also finds fault in everything and she dosen't like much of anything.
She says I am a waste, useless, she compares others who make much more money better. She basically said she felt like this from the beginning. She feels money is the only thing that matters.
My wife is sympathetic to me but she keeps saying "What can she do?" She says she can't through her out and I understand she can't be thrown out here becasue she really depends on us. At times my wife sort of sides with her and that makes me feel more depressed. She talks with her nicely knowing what she said about me and how she feels towards me. I feel so sick inside not knowing what can be done. I have said and my wife agrees that she seems to be trying to split us up and have her and my son to herself. I guess she hopes I will just leave. My friends say that she needs to go home.
Can anyone give any advice? I can't go on living here like this its sad! I feel like a prisoner. I feel bad becasue we have a son who just turned 4 and this is tough on him and I don't want that.
Thanks and God bless any advice you can give.
